At the moment

I am ad­dicted to the ‘Mond­schein’ mu­sic from Richard Strauss’s opera Capric­cio. It is an ex­quis­ite piece, re­mind­ing us of two things: firstly, that Strauss knew a thing or two about the French horn, be­ing the son of a horn player; and se­condly, that he was a mas­ter or­ches­tra­tor. My choice of record­ing is that by the Royal Opera House orches­tra un­der An­to­nio Pap­pano. Close your eyes and wal­low in what is a glo­ri­ous pas­sage of mu­sic.
